NOTE: pledges over the $2300 goal will go towards another day in the studio! :D

Kia ora, I’m Sam RB and it is time to record my second album - 'Queen Street Acoustics'

As an independent musician I've been busking on Queen Street over the last year to fund the recording of this album, and we've done it! Due to people’s generosity and belief in me I'm now able to record this album (at Studio 203, with Andrew Buckton) in mid February. Thanks to you all – I’m stoked! 

The next step, in terms of funding this project, is to raise $2300 to help with the post-production component of recording this album. This involves things like the print/press of album and the graphic design/artwork etc.  In other words the stuff that comes after the album is recorded, mixed and mastered.

Queen Street has played a massive part in this album happening, hence the acknowledgement in the title. The contribution, however, has not only been financial. Queen St is also where I have developed and worked on the songs for the album. Because of this I am launching the album on Queen Street itself - seems the obvious place! So each fine evening during March you will find me playing somewhere on Queen Street, with my new album 'Queen Street Acoustics'.

Please help me wrap this album up and show your support with a pledge if you can.

Much thanks for your continued support and love.

Sam RB 

Ps. If you're not familiar with my work you can listen to my debut album here and a song I most recently recorded here

Queen Street Acoustics - The Journey

To my WONDERFUL supporters - a montage of images from recording 'Queen Street Acoustics' and some of the moments leading up to it. Featuring one of my favourite songs on the album - Black Dog

Wahoo!

Heartfelt thanks to you all. Not only did the goal of $2300 get met, we actually got to $3000, which allows me to put the balance towards another day of studio time, for much needed mixing! :) so thank you all x

We have almost finished the recording of the album. I have a couple songs to put vocals down on tomorrow, a few BVS to do too. Mike Chunn is coming in tomorrow to put bass on our co-writes, and Dr Stephen Small is coming in to lay down some piano. If you enjoyed my debut, then I think you will really dig this album, its turning out better than I ever expected...stoked!

Next steps are mixing and mastering, and then press/print process at Stebbings. Rewards will be sent out as soon as I get the albums! Cant wait!

Picture: is the album cover, one example of what some of the post production funds raised made possible

thank you all x Sam RB
